Partial Verdict Reached On Castroneves
A partial verdict in the tax-evasion case against IndyCar driver Helio Castroneves has been reached by a federal jury in Miami.
The jury, however, was hung up on several other counts.
The federal judge in the case, Donald Graham, would not immediately read the verdicts on two tax evasion counts against Castroneves and told jurors to continue deliberating on four other tax evasion counts and one conspiracy count.
Castroneves, 33, along with his sister and an attorney, is charged with conspiring to evade more than $2.3 million in U.S. income taxes.
The jury said it also reached a partial verdict against Katuicia Castroneves, 35, who is her brother’s business manager, and a full verdict against Michigan motorsports attorney Alan Miller, 71. Those verdicts also remained sealed.
The three defendants face up to six years in jail.
